6 treated in Las Vegas after fumes reported on Spirit flight

Six people received medical attention after fumes on a Spirit Airlines flight were reported as the plane arrived at McCarran International Airport in Las Vegas late Tuesday.

Clark County Fire Department crews were sent about 11:30 p.m. to Terminal 1 to meet Spirit flight 726 arriving from Seattle.

Those seeking help were a mix of passengers and crew members, McCarran spokeswoman Christine Crews said.

“Upon arrival, four flight attendants and one guest were taken to a medical facility as a precaution and have since been released,” a Spirit spokesman said in an email. “Safety is our top priority at Spirit Airlines, and our maintenance crew is following up to determine the source of the odor.”
